Here's the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2021 Barbasol Championship

Go low or go home. It’s the mantra at more than a few tournaments on the PGA Tour, including the Barbasol Championship. The six-year-old event, played the same week as The Open, has been held at Keene Trace Golf Club near Lexington, Ky., since 2018 and in the two previous playings there (the 2020 event was canceled due to COVID-19), the winners have had to dig deep into red figures to hold on to the title.

Jim Herman shot a 26 under in 2019 to take the title over Kelly Kraft. The previous year Troy Merritt outpaced a trio of rivals to win with a 23-under score.

Even when the event was played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Grand National course in Alabama, you had to post four scores that started with a 6 to really have a chance. Overall, the worst winning total is 18 under par.

The problem: 54-hole leader J.T. Poston didn’t go low enough in regulation on Sunday, shooting a two-under 70 that including an untimely double bogey on the par-5 15th hole when his drive finished out of bounds by a fraction of a golf ball. That allowed Seamus Power’s five-under 67 to force a playoff, one that the 34-year-old Irishman would win on the sixth extra hole to grab his first PGA Tour win.

With the victory, Power earned a prize money payout of $630,000 from a purse of $3.5 million. That topped his previous largest paycheck in his five years on tour, $231,150 for his sixth-place finish at the 2019 RBC Heritage.

Here’s the prize money breakdown for all the people who make the cut at the Barbasol.
